a warrior day off

Harvey MacKay said

Find something you love to do
and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.

For us that is, at least for the most part of the journey, – very true.
For however long our days are, and however much there is
nothing like Sunday or Monday in the life of a Warrior,
or at least they don’t hold any truth as to being a day off or
the classic first day of the workweek, – we often don’t feel like
we’re working. We feel like we’re living

For our days float into nights where we open up,
be it over drinks or just great food, in a respite that only
brings us closer and where the most of our projects
and ideas come to life under the stars.

That said, a Warrior has to know when
it’s time for rest &, in some cases, – recuperation.
And a true Warrior knows, this too is an art.
It doesn’t matter what name the day has,
or where in the world we currently call home.
It’s all about being all there. 
And granted, some places on earth are
more easy than others to just be.
Let us take you a long for one of our favorite
places like that. Dream beach.
{Yes. That’s the actual name of it.}

Wherever we kick our sandals off, – that’s our home. | LW bracelet w. antique shells : here | + details from LW summer’14

 

 

 And this is why it doesn’t feel like we’re working.
Why instead it feels like we’re living. Because we can’t help but,
in the midst of just being, – meditatively picking shells & stunning shapes
on the beach, until time is erased entirely, – to also be inspired by just that.
And that’s what is then put into our work. The sensation of that day is
threaded on that bracelet, in between the shells & the cotton.
And that’s why it is an art form to have a day off as a Warrior,
the line between work & revitalization is a vague one;
it’s been washed over by the most beautiful of waves,
& left is only a immersion in the sand, at dream beach.

a spoonful of love

 

CoconutSpoons03Love

 

you might already know we’re {coco}nuts about
natural materials like wood, horn & bone.
especially the naturally aged ones with that special,
worn beauty that only time can render.
well, let’s just say we love it.

we love how it’s been loved, how it gives
our homes that unique touch that we
always strive for, ~ & we love how it just works,
both in simple style & beauty and also;
proven over time, with its worn look as the sign;
to have worked over and over again.

this time it’s almost all about spoons.
we bought ours already last year; on our very first warrior trip,
as we fell instantly in love with the antique spoons
from papua; made from coconut.
since then they’ve been featured in some interior magazines
and spread on blogs, ~ & you’ve wondered about how to get ’em.

now we’ve saved you a trip to papua, ~ & are so happy to have
tracked them down, thoroughly handpicked the most
beautiful ones and brought them home for the shop. and you.
we use ours in our bathrooms; gracing bowls & jars of
bath salts, and in our kitchens, to go with brown sugar
and white sea salt. they’re a simply such a beautiful detail..

.. and so are the crescent moon warriors.
we just love those little bad boys too. that love story
started the same way; with us falling head over heels
and going all have to have – nuts.

these are also antique and from papua, ~ & in this case
they’ve been used for storing medicine and we actually use
some of ours that way too. also they’re really cool, just as they
are; again with that quality we love; casually bringing
a unique touch to our homes, making statements
on piles of books and next to those fresh cut flowers.

so. a spoonful of love makes the medicine go down. we say.
and it’s all to be found in the shop just now.
hey autumn beautifiers, we love you !

the warriors

yesterday we got to hang with our fellow warrior
for the ’memento vivere’ shoot in her studio
{images coming up with our new kimono series : soon}.
beside the killer skull necklace, our favorite bone carver guy
made by hand as a prototype, miss honeypie, – reluctant to have 
her picture taken, ~ was wearing her samples of the
bracelets with antique shells from papua;
that we’ve just launched in the shop.

you who’s signed up for love letters has already
received a heads up about this, ~ & you who sees it now;
we only have a limited edition of those babies,
so go get’em quick if you love’em as much as we do.

we’ve also re-stocked the incredibly popular
white & wider shell bracelets; the love story that
just keeps on going. the love warriors laser cut leather
is also finally back in stock, with the 1st round having sold 
out quicker than we could’ve ever imagined.
we’re dizzy happy with the thought you lovely fashionistas,
~ & gypsy glam lovelies, are now walking with our design tucked
under your arms, – the streets of new york, amsterdam,
tokyo, sydney etc.. you make us proud, sisters !

there we go.. shell accessories & leather is up in the shop.
kimonos are on their way. look out for the memento vivere collection,
with handmade bone skulls at the back, ~ & a whole lot of love
sewn into the seams. memento vivere {latin meaning ’remember to live’,
engendered by the admonition memento mori, meaning ’remember
to die’.} .. yes, that’s a warrior way of living.

 what comes out of a shoot like this?
well, we can share a detail-shot, behind the scenes,
a self portrait by hannah, all ’skulled up’,
stronger than we think we ever saw her, so ready
to live that beautiful life. no reminder really required.
